Meet Nero Victoria’s Newest K9 Officer
Victoria Police Department just swore in it’s newest officer…and he’s only 19 months old.
Nero, a Belgian Malinois, was recently purchases by the Victoria 100 Club for the police department from the Hill Country Dog Center. His new handler will be Officer Troy Gilliam.
I’m sure Nero will adjust to K9 duties just fine. These K9’s have the same rights as any regular police officer and are protected as such. If a K9 unit dies in the line of duty, for any reason, they are given full funeral processions just as any human officer would.
Please join me in welcoming Nero to the City of Victoria….here’s to many happy years of service.
